Skip Scott Dunnam, center, looks on as lead Andrew Dunnam and second Steven Szemple sweep one of the final stones of the draw on the first day of competition in the 2014 National Junior Curling Championships at the Granite Curling Club of Seattle Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014. The Championships continued through the week, ending Feb. 1. The winning teams, Team Christensen and Team Vukich, will represent the United States at the 2014 World Junior Championships, Feb 26 - March 5, in Flims, Switzerland. The team sport, originated in 16th-century Scotland, is played by sending 42-pound granite stones down 138-ft. lanes, or "sheets," of ice. The goal is to place the stone nearest to the center of a target at the end of the lane.
